Conspiracy Fact

A “conspiracy theory” is a proposition that a group of people conspired on an event, such as an assassination. Conspiracy theorists developed a reputation in the 1970s and 1980s for being crazy and not accepting conventional wisdom. Investigative journalist Michael Rupper (1951-2014) said in 1997:

“‘Conspiracy theory’ is a piss-poor term by any standard. I deal in conspiracy FACT, and, as you will note from my web page,”

The term “conspiracy fact” was cited in print in 1970, but became popularly used since the 1990s. “Conspiracy fact” generally means a “conspiracy theory” that is proven to be true; however, a “conspiracy theory” could contain true “conspiracy facts” and still be a “theory.”


Wikipedia: Conspiracy theory
A conspiracy theory is an explanatory proposition that accuses two or more persons, a group, or an organization of having caused or covered up, through secret planning and deliberate action, an illegal or harmful event or situation.

Michael Ruppert: An Interview
interview by Tom Dooley
I came across Mike Ruppert’s website by accident, and at first was only mildly interested in what I found there. However, as conspiracy “theorists” go (Mike will tell you he only deals in conspiracy fact), this former LAPD narcotics investigator has a great deal of credibility.
(...)
Mike Ruppert: If what I say was hype, then the motive would have to be profit. In twenty years I have made less than seventeen thousand dollars from this while having spent more than thirty. “Conspiracy theory” is a piss-poor term by any standard. I deal in conspiracy FACT, and, as you will note from my web page, I make no assertions without documentation. That takes things out of the realm of theory, doesn’t it?

16 CONSPIRACY THEORIES THAT TURNED OUT TO BE CONSPIRACY FACTS
JULY 20, 2013 BY THE DOC
Are you a conspiracy theorist?  If not, perhaps you should be.  Yes, there have certainly been a lot of “conspiracy theories” over the years that have turned out not to be accurate.  However, the truth is that a large number of very prominent conspiracy theories have turned out to actually be true.  So the next time that you run into some “tin foil hat wearing lunatics”, you might want to actually listen to what they have to say.

Conspiracy Fact: How The U.S. Government Covertly Invented A “Cuban Twitter” To Create Revolution

It appears the U.S. government is doing its best to ensure that nobody anywhere in any corner of planet earth will ever trust American technology again (or U.S. aid for that matter). This process of distrust first really got going with the Edward Snowden revelations, which demonstrated that essentially all major U.S. tech firms are mere wards of the state with little to no privacy protections, and absolutely zero backbone.
